Here’s a little disclaimer…I hope I correctly identified the carnations in these photos…if not, leave me a comment! The blooms in the Mint design photo look slightly different to me…

So, what do you think? Do you like them?

Green Trick carnations last 2-4 weeks and have golf ball sized blooms. Check the Ballarat Carnations website for more information…

Thanks for stopping by today. I know the week is getting hectic for many as we near Christmas Day!
